Creating pieces both intimidating and inventive, 29-year old Dutch painter, Joram Roukes works out of the small town of Groningen in northern Netherlands. With airy layers and dream-like surrealist landscapes, Roukes’ stream-of-consciousness style creates multiple layers of content as well as medium. Fluidly designed, elements of Roukes’ creatures and narratives extrude and protrude from one another. “I am engaged in what the viewer will see and think. I think the paintings steer but not dictate. That is what I like to do, to confuse, allowing the viewer to express or project their point of view on what they see.”

Walt drew a pleasingly plump, smiling mouse and built a home for him in Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth. Big Daddy Roth created a sweaty-palmed, bloodshot, orbed rodent who looked like he frequented the seedier side of the Golden State. Fittingly, Ed Roth ended up spending the sunset days of his career at Knott’s Berry Farm, which was known for shoot ‘em up tableaux and way scarier rides. I stopped by Robert and Suzanne’s homestead to get a firsthand spin from the flinty eyed Williams himself.

Last month, when we showed you the trailer for Berlin-based David OReilly's "The External World," we were confused by his description of the film, "A boy learns to play piano." There was no piano in the trailer. Now, after screening at the 67th Venice Film Festival and Sundance 2011, OReilly has released the full-length, and there is a boy learning piano. Watch in full after the jump . . .
